It is best to follow the instructions as provided by your doctor, having potassium levels that are too high can be just as dangerous as having potassium levels that are too low.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of Norvasc as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension.

How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications?
